Volunteering

Volunteers come to the OSUCCC – James for many reasons. Some are cancer survivors who wish to offer the gift of hope and inspiration to others. Some are simply interested in giving back to the community and helping where needed. Each one of our volunteers is essential to the exceptional care we provide to our patients and the support we give our patients, caregivers and families.

In addition to donating their time, volunteers can choose to donate items to patients at The James. Please review our in-kind donation guidelines for more information.
